|The first Sacramento CX race of the year was yesterday. It was a very balanced course with lots of pavement but also a couple of dusty, off-camber turns that were probably more easily handled on a mtb. All I know is that my Vittoria Tigres were sliding all over the place. There were 4 dismounts; 2 with wood barriers, one log, and a sandy section about 25' long, where I managed to fall twice! It's pretty sad that the former runner fell twice while running!
I raced Bs, felt good about my race, had a great time watching the other races, and am looking forward to the rest of the series. The promoters and crew for these events are really cool folks. Thanks to Peak Cycling for the cap, socks, and water bottle (a quality bottle, too!), and to Seamus and Adventurefind for coming out to spectate and cheer!
